I just saw that Nikon updated their firmware.  For a whole host of cameras.

Does this mean that Nikon is more committed to their customers than Canon or simply that the firmware share lots of components and if a general (non-camera control) component is upgraded it is readily shared across the line ?

does look like some common features + model-specific ones

Good software practices - reuse code.  Too bad Canon does not take a clue  :o
